Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho, who returned to Spain for the 2020-2021 season.
BOLASPORT.COM – The news of Philippe Coutinho’s injury means that there is no cost to Liverpool.
Philippe Coutinho had to suffer an injury when Barcelona were held to a 1-1 draw at Eibar on Tuesday (29/12/2020) in the continued La Liga local time.
This news can actually be good news for Barcelona management and bad news for Coutinho’s former club, Liverpool.
Coutinho continues the struggle to be a key player at Barcelona this season after last season was only on loan at Bayern Munich.
The Brazilian midfielder is predicted to be one of the key players under Ronald Koeman this season.

However, Coutinho’s form fell short of what was expected.
This is getting worse because Coutinho suffered an injury in the match against Eibar last Tuesday.
Barcelona confirmed that the player has a lateral meniscus injury to his left knee, which means he will need to undergo surgery.
Quoted by BolaSport.com from Tribuna, Coutinho’s initial diagnosis could be absent at least for quite a long time, namely the next 4 months.
